The space

Make your Amsterdam experience unforgettable, stay at this boat and feel like a captain for a day!!

Complete apartment on houseboat in the heart of Amsterdam.
The boat was built in 1911 and was used for shipping coal, sand etc etc.
The boat was recently rebuild/refurbished; there is a living room, own bath- and bedroom and a complete kitchen with fridge, stove, oven and your own entrance. Wifi is available.
This part of the boat used to be the Captains Quarter. Therefore the wheelhouse is part of the quarters, this gives you a unique panoramic view on the Scheepvaartmuseum, Nemo, Public Library and the Central Station.
This central location also gives you the advantage that everything is easy and quickly accessible; Waterloo Square, Nieuwmarkt, Red Light District, Damrak and the Central Station are in walking distance (5minutes).

Stijn's place was a very unique experience. It had the benefit of being walkable from the train station and close to city center. It should be noted that the boat is in the harbor, not on one of the more iconic Amsterdam canals ... it's fine, just a different experience if that…

Staying at Stijn's place let us see the unique culture of houseboat life! He was super helpful with taking luggage to the boat, offering advice on restaurants & canal rides, & just being generally friendly. We would stay there again!

Stop looking for places to stay. You have found the perfect place. Views to die for, an amazingly friendly host, so close to everything but far enough away to feel quiet and cozy. Waking up and drinking coffee on the patio while gazing at beautiful Amsterdam is a memory I will…
